It seems that virtually everyone on here believes J.Higgins is a good-thing to put J.Trump out of his misery. The whole forum has passed judgement on Trump’s failings, me included, but it has been hard not be impressed with the way he knuckled down in his win over R.Walden. He was clearly the better player throughout, and despite his frustrations, he hung in there despite throwing away 3 frames yesterday. Today, after losing another frame he should have won, he finally opened up a bit and began to show some much-needed fluency with a fabulous clearance to level at 9-9 – although a suicidal red by Walden with 10-8 on the horizon was undoubtedly the life-line he needed. Higgins played well in his opening match, and needed to as T.Un Nooh threw everything at him in the 2nd session. He then demolished J.Lisowski, making a 146 in the process, and this gave him a much needed day off today. Higgins knows this year represents another fabulous chance to win a 5th World title, but if Higgins is such a good-thing to beat Trump then why is 8/11 freely available? Surely, we are all lumping on? Trump is available at 13/10. I'm happy to take 8/11 Higgins, as Trump needs to improve his long game. If he doesn't - it's difficult to see how he can win.

Higgins looked fatigued to me in his interview. I just can't see him lasting another 5 days especially if Wilson makes a real match of the semi. Hawkins or Williams for me, possibly Williams as he doesn't seem to take too much out of himself and can win frames with little effort.
